The Hidden Arboretum

(Dr. Elizabeth Whir Point of view)

By: Potterfan2006

As I was walking past one of the many balconies of the Atlantis base on my way to a mission briefing when I happened to notice something out of the corner of my eye. I turned around and saw a rather large room just off the steps of the nearest balcony. Then curiosity got the best of me. I walked to the balcony then down the stairs that lead into the room. I looked around and noticed that it looked like an Arboretum only with no flowers in it. Just as I was about to walk out I noticed the flowers just start to spring up out of the ground. So I set down and watched them grow I did not know how long that I was sitting there but the next time became aware of my surroundings again I looked outside and noticed that it was starting to get dark. Just as I was about to get up and go to dinner when I herd some one call my name so I walked out of the room and into the hallway. There I ran into Dr. Beckett and he said, "there you are lass John, Tayla, and I have been looking all over for you." He taped his ear peace and said, "John, I found her thanks you for your help." Then a pause then he said, "Dr. Beckett out." He then turned to me and asked, "Lass are you ok?"

"Yes why do you ask?" I answered with another question.

Dr. Beckett then responded, "When you did not show up for the mission briefing we were worried so we started to search for you and then here you are." Just then I started to feel a little light headed so I put my hand on the wall to steady myself and Dr. Beckett sprang into action. He came over to me and put his hand on my arm and asked, "lass are sure you are ok?" I shook my head yes and the world did a sickening loop so I slid down the wall and closed my eyes. The next thing that I knew was Dr. Beckett on his knees in front of me he said, "your shaking and you are sweating when was the last time that you had eaten something." After that he looked me straight in the before I answered him.

"Last night about 6:30pm." I replied.

Dr. Beckett looked at his watch and said, "that was over 24 hours ago lets get you down to the mess hall to get you something to eat because your blood sugar is low." As I got up Dr. Beckett put his arms around me and looked me in the eye and said the one thing that I thought he would never ask me, " Elizabeth will you do me the honor of becoming my girlfriend." I said yes and then he said that he loved me then he kissed me on the neck. Then we walked down to the mess hall to have dinner together.

The End
